productive as a government. surely we can agree on that. surely w we can't maintain, as mr. paul krugman did, unless he's advising the democratic majority in the senate, that even wasteful defense department spending shouldn't be cut, because we want to stimulate the economy. with borrowed money? throwing money at programs that are not -- no good? that's no way to do business. steny hoyer, one of the democratic leaders in the house, says, "does the country have a spending problem? the country has a paying-for problem." we don't pay enough, mr. hoyer says. mr. hoyer says we need to pay more to washington so washington can keep spending. we're not changing here. it's the american people's fault. don't you know that we are investing for you? give us more money so we can invest. yodon't you think all these programs work? aren't they doing great? no, we're he not going to reform them. we can't cut a single one. children will be thrown into the streets. old people won't have drugs or health care. all of this because of a modest reduction in the growth of spending? congressman ryan has demonstra de
chairman paul ryan has even said that it doesn't really matter how their budget eliminates the deficit. mr. president, americans across our country who will feel the impact of the choices we make in the coming weeks and months feel that it does matter. so while some of my republican colleagues would probably prefer not to hear about it, i think that the impact of the house republican budget is a crucial part of this debate, and we owe it to the american people to put our opinions on the record. now we've come a long way, mr. president, but there are still far too many americans today who are unemployed or underemployed, which is why our senate budget's first priority is boosting our economic recovery. speaker boehner has actually agreed with president obama that our debt does not present -- quote -- "an immediate crisis." so you might think the house budget would phase in cuts responsibly so we can protect our fragile recovery. well, instead the house republican budget would do serious damage to job creation and job growth and doubles down on the harmful cuts from sequestration which the n
budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know that they are getting and obama never talks about the trillion dollars in tax increases starting this year for obamacare. 1.6 and 1.5 is a 3 trillion-dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passes and a never balances because they turn round and spend another -- hundreds of millions of dollars more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. they do more spending with more taxes but with the brian budget does is very interesting for the republican future. it reforms entitlement, protect
